AIESEP World Congress 2018

AIESEP World Congress 2018

The conference explores how physical education can thrive under demanding circumstances associated with the needing of connecting PE learners' experiences with wider societal objectives, as increasing physical activity, enhancing health and wellbeing and bolstering sporting achievement.

On this basis, the Association Internationale des Écoles Supérieures d’Éducation Physique (AIESEP) World Conference in Edinburgh 2018 invites scholars to reflect on the part physical education can play in reshaping education futures.

This focus exists at multiple levels, from reviewing policy engagement at the macro level through to considering how new and exciting learning opportunities can take shape in schools.

 AIESEP World Conference 2018 title "Creating thriving and sustainable futures", embraces the theme "Engaging, empowering and innovative futures: enhancing connective possibilities for physical education and sports pedagogy" and the following sub-themes:

1. Physical education, policy engagement, and economic liberalism;
2. Empowering practitioners and supporting professional learning;
3. Transformative learning and teaching in physical education and sports pedagogy;
4. Innovative perspectives on physical education, physical activity, health and wellbeing, and sport.

EuPEO Project will be presented to the Physical Education Scientific community under the fourth AIESEP's 2018 World Congress Sub-theme.
